Enter Your Film

Entries for the 2018 Sit Down, Shutup and Watch Film & New Media Festival are now open!

The film needs to have a person with a learning disability at its centre. This means that a person with a learning disability is the force behind the film not simply the subject matter! You can be the writer, the composer, the director, the producer, the cinematographer, the animator, the rock star or the hero…or all of those things – but it has to be your film.

If you are considering entering a film, please read the Instructions for Entry first. The deadline for entries is Monday 30 April 2018.

Once your film is finished and you are ready to enter it, please
